The People's Park in the Sky is what used to be Imelda Marcos' unfinished Palace in the Sky. After the downfall of the Marcos dictatorship the ruins had become a public park where people can have a 360-degree view of Tagaytay including the Taal Lake. Public jeepneys ferry people from the terminal to the entrance gate. After paying a minimal entrance fee, visitors have to climb an uphill road to reach the unfinished and now decaying structure that reminds Filipinos of abuse of political power. Doubled with street vignettes while riding the bus from Tagaytay to Dasmariñas, Cavite.This photo was shot on film.
